A Great Day To Be Alive

And it's a great day to be alive
I know the sun's still shinin when I close my eyes
There's some hard times in the neigborhood
But why can't every day be just this good?

I'm not sure if I wrote about this before but, I just heard this song again yesterday and it brought tears to my eyes. (luckily it was night time so kurt didn't see to make fun of me..)

The week that Everett was in the hospital after he was born, has got to be the hardest week I have ever had to endure. Knowing that my baby was in the hospital and I was at home, feeling anxious and helpless. 

The day came and when I got a phone call from the nurse,  I was still somewhat composed, more excited than anything, and we headed to the hospital. 

Right when we were getting close to the exit, Kurt and I just happened to stop talking and this song came on. 

Then as we were turning into the hospital the chorus came. And I lost it. It WAS a good day to be alive. The sun WAS shining. It had been a hard time this past week, but now it was all over. 

Every time I hear this song, especially the chorus, I am overcome with emotion of that day and how incredibly grateful I was that my precious baby boy was healthy and able to come home. 

I am still incredibly grateful for his health and the love he brings to our family.. and  how he makes his motorcycle noises.

I dont know how you did it. WHen JR was born and they took him from me just for the day I was a nervous wreck, crying and demanding they bring me my baby! ha ha but I guess it was different cause JR wasn't sick. So glad everett was ok! we love him soooo much!
